    Now that we can utilize re-usable bags again - I find that this challenge is pretty easy.   I am just having a hard time remembering to bring my re-usable bags into the store - but a few more steps are good for me too!

    How does buying used differ from buying new? How does each purchasing decision make you feel?

    I am a huge fan of reusing & repurporsing items.  We foster pit bull pups and have several collars to share.
